SpoilersThis was awful The story had the potential to be cute and quirky but because of the whiny Mary Sue judgy bitchy heroine it was a bloody chore to read and if it hasn t already been made clear I didn t enjoy it AT ALL I hated the main character, Julie she was boring, pathetic and shrewish Even though the silly cow was seventeen, she d never had a boyfriend or even been kissed properly before, all because she was waiting for a boy she d not seen since she was six years old Who the hell fall [...]
3.5 stars An adventurous, hilarious romantic story about a too smart, know it all, self righteous Julia who wishes to find her MTB Meant to Be while on an educational tour around London when she was paired up for academic purposes with her least favorite person a carefree, troublemaker, jerk blooded Jason who seems intent on ruining all her carefully laid out plans.I wasn t a big fan of Julia in the beginning because I thought she was too smug but I soon realized all her I m better than everybod [...]
Meant to Be was entirely too cute It was sweet, wacky, and fun, with a sweet romance a brewing Julia is taking a class trip to London A dream trip, in Julia s opinion, without parents, and as she says an itinerary full of visits to places I ve only read about or imagined Unfortunately for Julia, her trip buddy she s assigned to is none other than the wisecracking, never serious, and highly irritating Jason They are basically stuck together like glue, and he is the complete opposite to her She ha [...]
What a cute read I spent a good deal of the book either grinning stupidly or laughing out loud Yes, it was a bit cliche, and there were parts that were a bit cheesy, but there s that fun, sweet innocence of I m five years old, and I like you, so I m going to pick on you type of romance And I m usually good about figuring out things early on, but ooooh, I can t believe Morrill snuck that one by me This was definitely one of those books that just leave you smiling in the end.

1.5 starsCan we boycott teenage girls that think they re better than everyone else because they read classic novels and listen to the Beatles Can we boycott teenage girls who think they re better than other girls because they are conservative and wear clothes We need to boycott this entire book to escape the pretentious and idiotic main characters and themes explored.
When I picked this book up, I honestly wasn t expecting too much However, it ended up completely surprising me This book is up there in the ranks with Stephanie Perkins for meI feel like Perkins fans will absolutely love adore this book It didn t take me long to be completely sucked into the story, and I read the entire thing in one day The author just NAILED IT with this book, and there is so much about it that I loved It was exactly what I needed and had been craving, so it was a completely sa [...]

This book THIS BOOK It may just be my favorite YA contemporary EVER If you know me at all, you know I was once okay, am still very skeptical of contemporary novels I m afraid of finding them vapid and shallow and then having to review the insipid things So, even before I started Meant to Be, I prayed to the book gods that it would be as good as My Life Next Door for me because prior to reading this novel, that was the best YA contemporary I d ever read But Meant to Be was even better it surpasse [...]
Oh, man This book So cute I read this in one sitting well, really I was on my bed I sat down, started reading, and didn t stop until it was over I genuinely cannot see why someone would not like this book It s in LONDON, for crying out loud I very much approved This book is right up there with Anna and the French Kiss and The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight Really, it s like the Holy Trinity that s not sacrilegious, right.Anyway, what I really loved about this book is the humor It [...]

2.75 StarsWas this book incredibly predictable or I m brighter than I m giving myself credit for She s the perfect student and he s a troublemaker It s not meant to be, or is it I ve got to say I m a little unsure about the rating It s a sweet story with a nice, hopeful message for all the romantic girls out there but when your female MC annoys the bejeezus out of you, the sweet story turns into something painful.The good London AMARITE Jason s childish attitude The guy was a complete mess and I [...]

This had all the ingredients for the light and fluffy read I was looking for foreign location London town enemies turned sweethearts ginger hero cute coverSadly, it failed short of my expectations sigh I must admit, I m partly to blame I was still in the middle of a fantastic series when I started this, but I convinced myself that I wouldn t be able to handle an emotionally exhausting read during a weekend that s supposed to be about getting some rest and relaxation This seemed like the perfect [...]
Review Interview here on my blog This is a book that took me by utter surprise I was thinking that I would be reading a cute contemporary novel I hadn t read the description or even heard what it was about You see, I met Lauren twice before I even thought about requesting it on NetGalley If her book is as awesome as she is, it has GOT to be a good read.Let s talk about the book I was surprised at how much I was like Julia in high school, minus the grades She s a stickler for rules and MAPS Oh my [...]

5 starsOMG I LOVED THIS SO MUCH RTC
Rating 3 stars But things work out, you know Even if it doesn t feel okay for a long time, or even if it feels like things will never be okay again, everything works out in the end I don t particularly loved this book, like it was just okay for me, though some parts we re good.1 I really didn t like the protagonist Like seriously, Julia In love with THREE guys How s that EVEN possible I don t call this love, I call this having a crush on somebody It made me feel like Lauren Morrill, the author, [...]

2,5 starsWARNING RANTING AHEAD This book is a bit of a contradiction to me Its cute buts also its literary every romance cliche in existence stuffed into a book.Its a good plot, but SO predictable with everything that happens.It has nice characters, but at the same time they are so overdone The pacing was good, but at the same time there was always something missing Its just a strange book in a way Its not bad Its actually pretty good But it could be so much better if the author wouldn t have tr [...]

Rating 2,5Allah m, sen bizi ergen k zlardan koru Dinimiz amin.
DNF 50% because it was turning to be awfully boring and tedious.Well, there goes my patience It s been desiderating out of my system as far as I could remember I mean, don t get me wrong This wasn t a horrible book.The opening cred actually caught my attention because I love flying and I find it funny for Julia to be scared but it just didn t sit well with my other contemporaries It didn t exactly scream for me And I m finding this odd though because I m consecutively reading contemporaries that [...]
